In celebration of Super Mario Bros.’ 35th anniversary, Nintendo has unleashed a slew of upcoming ports of some of the finest games the iconic chubby plumber has appeared in over the decades. The highlight is without a doubt Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury that is bringing one of the best Wii U games to a much more popular platform. Here’s the announcement trailer!
Back in 2013 when Super Mario 3D World originally launched for the Wii U, it was one of the best reasons to own a Wii U. But despite being a great Mario title, it couldn’t prevent the console from becoming a massive flop.
Fast-forward to the present and Nintendo has really turned the tables with the Switch. The handheld-console hybrid is a massive success and Nintendo has long been banking on porting Wii U exclusives to their new system with great success.
Pounce and climb through dozens of colorful stages! Mario (and his friends) can use power-ups like the Super Bell, which grants catlike abilities, like climbing and scratching. Work together locally* or online** with up to three other players to reach the goal…and to see who can get a high score.
The Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury game features the same great co-op gameplay, creative levels and power-ups as the original game, but also so much more. Additional details about what fun things this game has to offer will be revealed soon!
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is the next chapter in this endeavor. With the introduction of online multiplayer and new content in the form of the Bowser’s Fury expansion, there is good reason to be excited, even if you played it on the Wii U.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is slated to launch for the Nintendo Switch on February 21st, 2021. Pre-orders for the game are live now via Nintendo for $59.99.
